Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) aims to encourage closer links between home and school; the PTA provides an opportunity for parents and carers to support the school and to take an active role in being part of our school community. This collaboration between different stakeholders at Yorkmead aims to make the school experience even more enjoyable for children, parents and teachers.
Throughout the year, the PTA organise events that provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to come together as a community. Whilst these events have a positive social function, they also serve as an opportunity to raise funds, which will be used to further develop our school’s resources and its grounds.
It is impossible for us to run events without support from parents and the wide school community so we are always on the lookout for parent helpers and ideas for new, fun events. The PTA is a great way to meet the teachers and other parents, both from your own and other year groups. If you are unable to come along to a meeting but you are able to help out with events, either on the day or in the run up, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mrs Bell.
